Energy efficiency is not just a new trend; it’s the way of the future! When it comes to building homes, energy efficiency should be a key consideration, as a few simple design changes can help homeowners save a lot on energy costs. If you’re ready to build your new house, continue reading to learn about the many benefits of owning an energy efficient home.
Energy efficient homes are more comfortable for homeowners in terms of temperature, humidity, and air movement. While there is no combination that is guaranteed to be considered perfect for everyone, there is a range at which the general population feels comfortable. This is known as “right-sizing” of the HVAC systems, as the standard-setting comes from years of research. For example, the majority of people feel most comfortable at 75-78 degrees and 45%-55% relative humidity in their homes. These conditions, in addition to the actual home elements, will help to make your home as comfortable as possible.
Lower Operating Costs
One significant benefit of an energy efficient home is the lower operating costs, which can help save you a lot of money over time. With the use of energy efficient appliances, improved HVAC systems, high-performance windows with insulation, air infiltration, and water efficiency, you will see a considerable decrease in operating costs. In fact, energy efficient homes built in 2019 will be up to 30% more efficient than homes built to the 2006 International Energy Efficiency Code. As technologies continue to evolve, smart homes are able to keep up with the latest trends in energy efficiency.
